Lights come in all colors and shades
And hues—And lights come in circles
Like the stoplight’s green and red.
Highlights rise above, while spotlights
point out what we should notice,
And sunlight illuminates and warms.
The light you bring every day of the year
Is, however, much like the candle of yesterday
Cheer: it twinkles a smile sheds light on the truth
And reaches the soul of our most lovely youth.
That’s what it is, a Soul-light of sorts!
It’s the very essence of bright and serene—
You calm and add value when things
Sometimes feel dark—and yes you are
Valued for your quirk and your spark.
Merry Christmas to you and to all
whom you love.
